Here’s an easy-to-make recipe for a pizza-flavored snack mix made with Cheerios!

The cereal has a starring role, since the how-to for party treat comes from General Mills’ 1980 booklet, “Cheeriodle Cookbook for Kids.” The recipes in the pamphlet were created in the Betty Crocker Kitchens, then tested at home by kids ages 8 to 12. (See more recipes made with Cheerios here!)
